Bella Hadid Bares Her Nipples with Kendall Jenner at Marc Jacobs' Controversial Runway Show
It's not a proper New York Fashion Week without a little controversy!

Last week, Marc Jacobscame under fire and was accused of cultural appropriation after the models at his New York Fashion Week fashion show — including Kendall Jenner, Karlie Kloss, and the Hadid sisters — hit the runway in brightly-colored yarn dreadlocks.

The designer was immediately slammed for choosing to style his models in dreadlocks while also not including any models of color in his show. Jacobs took to Instagram to respond to the accusations and only made things worse when he compared white women in locs to black women straightening their hair.

After being attacked once again for his ignorant comments, it seems as though the designer may have finally learned his lesson… kind of. Yesterday (Sept. 18, 2016), Jacobs took to Instagram to apologize for being “unintentionally” insensitive.

Unfortunately, Jacobs still hasn’t admitted to understanding exactly why what he did was cultural appropriation, and many former fans are less than impressed with the designer.
